Wow is right! I visited his website and I'm enthralled with his bartering board. I'm brainstorming how to get one of those going in my community now...

Thank you for posting this video. This guy's lifestyle is inspiring on many levels, and should be required viewing for anyone who might feel like their life is in a rut. Just when you think you've seen every possible way of living a life, someone like this comes along and creates a whole new category.
His wagon/trailer is an amazingly versatile kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, storefront, dairy and more.

I don't know about instagram, but he has his own youtube channel (most people find him now through that video Kirsten Dirksen made, but he has made many videos with his phone, for years!) and an account on facebook.
Since I discovered him (yes, I saw Kirsten Dirksen's video too) I started watching his own videos. Some are really interesting, some are not (when he's 'angry at bad guys').

Thanks Inge - I'll check him out. Sounds like he needs to read Pauls's book

One of his most interesting 'inventions' is this 'wearable wool tiny home':

Yeah I subscribed to his utube channel.
Found it through kirsten too.
Been watching it for awhile.
 Never thought much about which is the most sustainable pet before.

Hermit + Permaculture = Hermiculture?
